We enjoyed some glasses of cold white wine and a light lunch and it was lovely. The staff were friendly and chatty, the gardens were pretty, cool and relaxed and we enjoyed it so... More

We were planning to take a drink here after reading good reviews, but we turned around in the door after seeing the poor parrot sitting on a stick with a leach on his foot. When he tryed to fly, he got hit in the ground because of the leach. We dont want to support any place that thinks this is... More

As the headline states, they keep a parrot (large bird) chained on a pole i the garden. The poor bird is soon to lose his other leg. Stressed and restless. Do not support this place in its animal abuse! By the way: before we did see the parrot, we had lunsj at the restaurant. Now, three days later Im still... More

Fantastic bar with food in the most wonderful surroundings; staff friendliness variable but we were recognised from a year ago and a great welcome

This is a very quaint little place to eat really good food and have a drink. It is outdoor with beautiful flowers and plants and music is played whilst you relax. It's difficult to find, it's not in the open. It's on Socrarus street, which is in the old town. It's a bit of a hill and is on the... More

Called in here for a drink one night when walking round Rhodes Old Town at night. What a perfect little oasis in the middle of a busy yet fascinating place! Couldn't believe our eyes! Trees of all sorts, waterfalls, clean toilets, great service and drinks all just off a busy main thoroughfare. A lovely place to spend a relaxing time.

Lovely bar hidden away in the old town. Fab simple and reasonably priced Greek food with an awesome cocktail selection. Friendly bar staff and attentive waiters (especially christophus). Best Appletinis in Rhodes! Would definitely recommend for late afternoon/ early evening drinks. The surroundings are beautiful, definitely a secret garden!

Visited this bar and restaurant with my wife a few years ago and had excellent food and drinks. Recommended it to friends who were off on holiday to Rhodes and on their return they told me it was still excellent, they had eaten there three times, twice for lunch and once for dinner. It is a quiet oasis in the... More

We first visited here purely by chance when in the old town for a day when they used to have parrots in the garden. Last year visited again and had to go back when we returned to the old town - you escape the hustle bustle and hassle from street side restaurants into this open air garden venue - simple... More
